Kolker Room, Building 26-414
Those of us who have had the good fortune to be friends with Roy Glauber have known of his participation at a very young age in the most crucial phase of the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos. His original recollections are truly fascinating and we take advantage of the opportunity of the completion of the documentary “That's the story" by María T. Soto-Sanfiel and José I. Latorre, to invite Roy to be with us on June 4 to speak about his Los Alamos experience following a 10 minute preview of the documentary. For those interested in seeing the full documentary this will be shown at the end of Roy’s remarks and of his replies to questions from the audience.
You will be guests of LNS for coffee, tea and a light snack.
Aron Bernstein, Bruno Coppi and Alan Guth
